It's Episode 77 of In the Mood for Podcast, a British-based film podcast hosted by Calum Reed of Ultimate Addict and Pete Sheppard of In the Mood for Blog.
This week's episode is particularly risque, as controversial erotic French drama, "Blue is the Warmest Colour," hits UK screens. Both of us were taken aback by the sapphic desires, but did its all-girl relationship work for us? We had dramatically different opinions of Brian De Palma's "Carrie," but Cal caught Kimberley Peirce's remake and had some choice words to say about it, while a review of "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" forces Pete to ponder questionable costume designing. We discuss the mythologising in Disney's factually dodgy "Saving Mr. Banks," before chatting about our favourite films about authors. Tune in to hear us re-introduce the Cage Scale, joke about vagina and side-boob shots, and reveal which of the week's films channels "Mommie Dearest." All that, plus an epic news segment concerning the latest critics awardsfoils Pete's plan for an hour-long episode. Maybe one day we'll get there.
